AV Club
13 December 2010

Their entire premise depends on characters exploring the entire world to completion, so what’s supposed to happen next? The original Golden Sun and its 2003 sequel succeeded by telling a single story over two games.

  • Excerpt: If there was one thing that had me in tears of joy and fits of happiness during the 16-bit days, it was an RPG. Sure, they may have cost anywhere between 60 and 80 dollars a pop, but they were well worth it.
